We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Jacob Schoen & Son Funeral Home
Jane Vanderbrook Philibert, age 74 of New Orleans, passed away Saturday, June 11, 2022.
She was a graduate of Francis T. Nichols High School, where she was on the flag team, and The University of New Orleans. Jane was a member of Alpha Xi Delta Sorority and served as Chapter Advisor for many years after graduating. Jane worked at Tulane University in the Business Library for 20 plus years, Louisiana State Attorney General Office and several lawyers in the New Orleans area until retiring to take care of her mother. Jane was known for her homemade fudge, bacon wrapped breadsticks, dirt cake and over the top birthday celebrations for people. She had a flare for attire that went with any holiday or occasion. She was a die-hard Mardi Gras fan, attending and participating in parades since she was a little girl. She was a member of the crew of Pandora and then the crew of Iris until her last ride in 2019.
Preceded in death by her parents Edward Joseph and Doris (Born) Vanderbrook, Jr. She is survived by her son Rudolph L.
